Our Coordinator has been great! She is able to converse and engage with both of my girls in the planning.
Supporting children with disability and developmental delays
The early years of a child’s life are the foundation for all future development. Early experiences shape the developing brain and set up how children learn and develop later in life. Support provided early gives your child the best possible chance for them to reach their full potential.
If you have any concerns about your child’s development, it’s important to ask for help. Contact us today on 1800 290 555.
With support, every child can get the best possible start in life.
Starting your journey
If you’re a parent or carer of a child younger than 9 years of age with a disability or concern about your child’s development, Baptcare can help.
We are Early Childhood Partners of the NDIA, and can set up a wide range of services and supports for you, your child and your family.
Check to see if you live in an area where Baptcare works from our NDIS contact page here.
When working with children 0-6, we’re called Early Childhood Partners. We can help your child and your family by connecting you with support and services, as part of an approach called Early Childhood Early Intervention.
Whether your child requires simple support or has complex needs, we can help you get the right kinds of support and services, at the right time to help your child thrive.
Early intervention is specifically tailored to each child, and the support you’ll receive is different from support an older child or adult would receive. Examples of early intervention include strategies for parents, connecting with local play groups, & peer and allied health supports.
All our Coordinators are qualified and experienced in working with children with disability and developmental delays. In many cases our Coordinators are also parents of children with disabilities too.
Such as: providing information and education programs to encourage skills and learning; access to short-term allied health support; introducing you to playgroups and other community activities in your area; and, if needed, help you understand and access funding through the NDIA.
They’ll work alongside you and your child to promote your child’s learning and development.
We understand that the better we can support you, the better you can support your child. To help, your Coordinator will work with you to develop the skills and confidence you need to support the development of your child.
